A peculiar girl transforms into a cat to catch her crush's attention. But before she realizes it, the line between human and animal starts to blur.
Spoiler Free Review Time!!! What can I say? A Whisker Away is just fascinating. Have you ever had those moments in life where you feel like you're not wanted? This mask that you have is very convenient. Sometimes, you just don't want to be you. A mask where you can get close to the one you love. A mask where you won't be hated because you're not you anymore. But is there a price? Despite some parts of the movie sounding a bit cliche, the movie does handle the cliche very well. It's worth it. All 144 minutes of my time. How can such an animation be so simple, yet so beautifully done? If you could take the time to listen to the lighthearted music in the background, it goes very well with the movie. Even though you're a dog person, you'll still enjoy this. You'll also be able to love and get attached to the characters like I did. Yes, Muge (AKA Miyo) and Kento are amazing people and so are their friends. Want a cute romance movie? Watch it. Have a love for cats? How about, just animals in general? Watch it. Want a strong, outgoing female protagonist? Watch it. I laughed. I cried. I am satisfied.
I gotta say this movie I never expected so many crazy and amazing thhings happen. As I haven't seen anyone do a review for this movie, I will be the first to do so. I'll make this a spoiler free review. As the story shows, Miyo "Muge" Sasaki is a headstrong girl who falls in love with her classmate, Kento Hinode. He takes no notice of her no matter how many times she tries to get his attention. So with this newfound magical secret that she discovered one night, she uses this power to persue him, but will it cost her humanity to get closer to him? The story itself is pretty good. It goes through the hardships between the characters and the side characters as well. It's giving like a life moral about relationships and hardships, almost like 'A Silent Voice' in a way. Even with Muge as she is shown to be the most happiest and craziest girl. It is nice to show that such happy people like Muge even struggle as well. Even choosing between her humanity and living as a cat. I love how each character has a use, they weren't made for sitting in the sidelines doing nothing. The movie can be really calming and gives off a Studio Ghibli vibe to it. It brings many emotions to the movie, there were times I couldn't stop laughing, awing at the cuteness or I was just dumbfounded at the craziness in the movie. The animation is gorgeous. The camera movements were outstanding and each detail was beautiful drawn out. Each colour was vivid it has so much detail and movement. It is like an eye candy. Like I said before, it even brings out the Studio Ghibli vibe for many scenes, I won't explain too much as I wants this to be spoiler free. It brings out so much life to the anime and in a creative way. I really enjoyed it and would recommend to watch it. (I'll come back to the music since I didn't pay too much attention while watching the movie.)
Spoiler Free Review (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ Get your tissues ready!A Whisker Away takes you on a heartwarming journey about a brave young girl with past hardships she keeps to herself trying to be who she feels she needs for those around her. This production keeps you captivated with the artwork and well planned camera angles without getting distracted by needless details. The story is easy to follow with a beautiful blend of character development not to mention the way they end the movie is PERFECT, it doesn't leave you frustrated at end of story interactions like some movies/series do. Hint: Don't stop after the "closing scene" you'll miss the closure that's creatively tied into the ending credits. (; While this a newer release on Netflix, I see a LOT of people have it in their "Want To Watch" definitely time well spent so I highly recommend putting this little charm under your "Watched" (and loved <3 ) section. （＊＾Ｕ＾）人（≧Ｖ≦＊）/
